The third edition of RIMLSpeaks entitled “Challenge for change" was organized for all our (j)PI’s in Huize Heyendael.



The demand to change our scientific landscape is continuously increasing. Discussions about science in transition, open science and plan S are timely both at the national as well as international level. The call for social responsibility and impact of our research has risen sharply, the reputation of science seems at stake by publications on “sloppy science”, a high publication pressure and complains about work load and stress of our researchers, urge researchers and policy makers to change our current research strategy.

During a thought-provoking debate Profs. Frank Miedema (Former Dean and vice-chair of UMC Urecht), Marileen Dogterom (Professor of Bionanoscience of University of Delft), and René Bindels (Scientific director of RIMLS) discussed these issues with our (junior) principal investigators. The event was moderated by Malou van Hintum (scientific journalist). After these lively discussions, there was a round table dinner to discuss some more in a social setting.
